We are praying for County Line today. The last of the municipalities in the metro-Birmingham area that begin with “C”. Ginny said there was very little info out there, and it seems it doesn’t have a mayor from what little info she could find about it. If any of you have more information, we would love to know about it!

John 15:16 – “You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask of the Father in My name, He may give to you.”
Jesus, we love You and adore You. Thank You for making a way for us to have access to the Father through Your death in our place on the cross. Thank You that the work to reconcile us to God is finished, and that there is nothing we have to do to earn Your love or the Father’s love and forgiveness. Thank You for choosing us to be Your children when we were enemies of God, children of wrath. Your grace amazes us.
Lord Jesus, You have appointed the town of County Line to exist for such a time as this. You have a purpose and a plan for that town. We ask that You would bring that plan forth in Your perfect timing, and that You would provide the resources they need to accomplish Your will.
Raise up the person You have ordained and called to be the mayor for County Line, and those who You’ve called to serve in leadership for the town. We ask that it would be a man or woman after Your own heart. May this be a town whose leadership gets established in prayer, and who actively seek Your face and Your counsel in all of their ways.
We ask for an increase in jobs in County Line, and that You would provide its residents with the ability and resources to meet their needs. Bring increase where there has been lack. Bring abundance where there has been poverty. Bring life where there has been death. Bring health where there has been infirmity. Bring peace where there has been strife.
We pray these things of the Father in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, and for Your glory.
How is the Lord leading You to pray for County Line?
